The Non-Slip Loop Knot is a must have for any freshwater or saltwater angler. By creating a loop at the head of the fly, this knot allows for a more natural movement of the fly through the water. So next time you’re throwing streamers from a drift boat, or crabs to tailing permit, use the Non-Slip Loop Knot to give yourself an added advantage.
Step 1: make a overhand knot, leaving about 4″-6″ of a tag end
Step 2: Pass the tag end through the eye of the hook and then through the loop again. You want the loop created near the eye of the hook to be about 1/4 of the length of the hook shank. Also, make sure that the tag end and standing end pass through the over hand knot in the same direction.
Step 3: Make 4-8 wraps around the standing line with the tag end. Then insert the standing end through the over hand knot
Step 4: Lubricate, then pull the standing end and the fly to tighten. Snug up the knot by pulling on the tag end.
